Taking the bait

My sister-in-law challenged herself to do a post a day for this month.  She’s using the alphabet as her guide for each day (A is for, B is for, etc).  I told myself this wasn’t the time for me to try something like this, but then every day I come up different things to use with the letters.  Except A.  I was stuck on A.  Clearly I’m starting in a little late, but I figure I’ve got a few days of cushion what with 26 letters and 31 days.  And, if I spill into August a bit, no harm done!  And so I bring you…

A is for All right, already.  I’ll do this thing!

I do want to give you a quick update about my jaw.  I saw my Internist and he confirmed what J and I believed, that I have TMJ.  His wife suffers from it as well (must be something about being married to a med student turned doctor!) and he said I’d likely be dealing with this for a very long time.  He’s referred me to a TMJ clinic, which I thought was run by the ENT department.  But when the paperwork came yesterday, it said Dentistry Clinic on it.  So I guess I have to list my dental insurance rather than health?  I’ll get it all figured out this afternoon.
While I’m in the updating mood, I’m no longer taking care of the 3 kids.  Back when LB had his surgery, she sent them to a daycare and has decided to keep them there.  So there went my income, gone just like that (snaps for effect).  I’m praying that God will open a new door.  I know He will, it’s just a matter of me being patient in the meantime.  I’d certainly appreciate any wisdom you could send my way!

  1. I have no real wisdom except to wait and see and enjoy the time with your own kids without extras. 🙂
    Time is short – pretty soon they’ll be off to summer camps and driving and college…
    Good luck with the TMJ. Hope they can give you some relief.

    Praying for solutions all around…
